Various sources, from Fox8 to Journal Now, are saying they expect some significant growth. This is likely because of the innovation quarter and the influx of new business in the area — the latter a fortunate side effect of the numerous co-working space that have cropped up in the area.

And if you’re reading this as a property manager, you should know that we’ve been putting the teams in place to handle larger workloads for the last year. With our new, larger office in Kernersville, expanding our service area into Winston Salem was only the beginning.
